This five-acre enclave might be smaller than the average zoo, but it's just the right size for small kids.

Get up close with nearly 200 exotic animals who call this student-run teaching zoo their home, including Ira the lion, alligators, geckos, monkeys, tigers, camels, snakes, ocelots, and more.

Visitors can also check out fun shows and demonstrations, where animals engage in enrichment activities ranging from painting with primates to water buffalo football.
